Hi everyone! My name is MILANA, I'm 11 years old and have been playing drums since I can remember! 7 years to be exact 🙂
I LOOOVE TOOL. And Danny Carey fascinates me. I picked 'Ticks and Leeches' because it's an absolute blast to play, and it doesn't have any swearing ;). Cool story - mom took me to see Danny play in a small club last year and I actually got to help him load in his gear 😀
Since the age of 6, I've played in various bands and on dozens of stages, in styles ranging from Brazilian Bateria to Big Band to Metal. Performing all over the world is my dream! I've had some incredible experiences so far, so I try to challenge myself every day to prepare for any opportunities that come my way.
Here are some highlights I'm incredibly grateful for: jamming with two of my favorite drummers, Sheila E. and Stewart Copeland as well as Grammy-Award winning artists (members of Snarky Puppy, Dave Matthews Band, Tower Of Power and more), Josh Dunn, drummer for Twenty One Pilots, sharing my 'Lane Boy' cover on social media, drumming on 3 national tv shows, a major commercial, and believe it or not - playing trombone in Gwen Stefani's latest music video!
All drummers influence me in their own way, especially ALL OF YOU. I must admit though, I'm dying to meet Chad Smith! 😉
